it's time for the conspiracier this res, it has been pounded into our head that they can change the id of any law, so how do we know that what is the new definition of combat. we're not allowed to kill any american citizen on american soil involved in combat and what if you are vacationing in london. why can't they just have in the law we're not allowed to kill american citizens without a trial. >> uh-huh. that makes sense. >> stephanie: yeah, all right. >> how do you define an enemy combatant? what is combat. >> stephanie: yeah. >> it's a nebulous definition -- >> stephanie: you can imagine this hypothetical happening and the republicans will immediately say he is weak on terror. you know. all right,ing rand paul. >> and that cousin someone has

neo-nazis and extremist groups such as ted -- >> stephanie: he did say one hypothetical about what -- the drone -- libertarian group going to meet -- i mean it really was -- >> caller: what they are doing is this. they have these training camps like terrorist camps overseas. maybe the government is using these drones to observe these people. now what i want to ask you is this, a drone is nothing but a weapon, and if you look at it it can be used and no one has said about shooting anyone on american soil, but these are the people he is trying to protect. he has intelligence as we know. these people are being objected like ted nugent saying he going to kill people. you got people on internet threatening against the government, so he is coming out and trying to protect these people. >> stephanie: i think that's what they clarify -- it is not
6:41am
an intent. it is somebody engaged in combat actively against the united states. he go so into hypotheticals. would we have bombed jane fonda? no. and then he talked about kent state, but his examples were ridiculous, i thought. >> well kent state -- >> stephanie: no, the president -- but drones against war protesters? no. >> but that's what the national guard did. they killed students protesting war. >> stephanie: right. i understand -- trust movie to fill three hours a day, so i understand, filling 13 hours, you have going to say ridiculous things. i say ridiculous things just for three hours. >> right. i should play them all back for you -- >> stephanie: no! i could never run for office. i said what now. richard from chicago.

>> caller: hi, like the show. we're flying drones and killing people, now -- >> stephanie: wait. wait. richard to go to chris's argument about again why we don't need to do it here is because we have law enforcement and jurisdiction here -- what do we do in pakistan? >> well, we declare war on them might be a start -- >> stephanie: we should declare war on pakistan. >> caller: we're killing people there, and we did it in vietnam -- >> stephanie: i disagree we should declare war on pakistan -- >> we have killed a lot of civilians in pakistan -- >> stephanie: but do i have a problem of going into pakistan which is exactly what obama said he would do. they will not help and they had

intelligence that osama bin laden was there, and he got him. >> stephanie: but that was ant drone strike. >> stephanie: right. >> it was a man with a bun -- >> stephanie: right, but i don't think we can do surgical strikes in every single instance. >> no, that's impossible. >> stephanie: dave hey, dave. >> caller: if you are traditional republicans and the likes of rand paul [ inaudible ] mccain and lindsey graham have been in the senate a long time and i think fundamentally they have a trust of the government but then you have these rand pauls who is libertarian and looks through everything with libertarian glasses, so the government is always suspect, just waiting to do something bad to you -- >> that's more anarchist. >> caller: well to a degree, but the fact is government is
6:44am
suspect, so he has to make sure at every turn that the government is not going to be doing something bad, and it struck me as a kind of -- one of the things that made me feel sad about it is can we no longer operate with any kind of assumption that the government isn't going to do something like this internally? >> i think a slight mistrust of what the government does is actually healthy. >> caller: well, i do too, chris. that's the whole business of why -- i agree with you completely on that. >> i had major distrust for the bush cheney administration. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: exactly. can i say one thing slightly naughty? >> stephanie: yes. >> caller: that point of entry may not be the way to get to my eyes, but it is the way to get to my heart.

stamp. don't tell rand paul the quickest way to your eye. >> yeah, he is letting the market decide. if the market sayses you should go in through your blank hole -- >> stephanie: right. harry reid >> what i have learned with filibuster is this to succeed you need strong convictions but also a strong bladder. it is obvious senator paul has both. [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: this would be good. this help lead to real filibuster reform. it made him a folk hero on the right, but also provided a healthy goes of oxygen. harry reid said we should all reflect on what happened yesterday as we proceed on nominations. this can be a senate where ideas are debated in full public view or a small minority obstructs from behind closed doors without
6:46am
ever coming to the floor. as we were saying on the same day, the senator quietly -- >> that was through are wusesy filibuster, those. >> stephanie: right. that's what i'm saying. yesterday we saw both sides working on one hand my colleagues did not demand order, instead [ inaudible ] qualification of a qualified nominee. republicans hid beside a clochure vote. but think republican senator did return to regular order. he spoke for as long as he was able. that is a filibuster. so reid's comments -- democrats expressed hope that the january bill would usher in a new era of

comedy in the chamber -- >> commuter says no. >> comity not comedy. >> stephanie: right. well it did both. thank you. although his comments wink at revisiting reform. it's not clear he intends to do so. how has that worked out so far, i wonder? i think it's time to revisit the merkley amendment. shine a light on it. well that will show them. really? oh, now i'm sure they are going to do the right thing. >> you have never scene the movie. >> 10 to 20 million -- >> i think you would really enjoy that movie. >> stephanie: i think i will get
